"As a mom of two girls who are involved in everything, I love online lessons with Patti Kusturok!! What a time saver, Tayler sits down at our computer and does a half hour lesson, no driving around to lessons for us anymore. For our busy household this is perfect! And it also helps that Patti is an extremely talented musician and instructor"....Parent, Rural MB

"As a developing fiddle player, I was a little wary of online lessons in the beginning. However, after 6 weeks of lessons, I think they are fantastic! No more driving around, and Patti is always on time. Even though she is hundreds of kilometers away, it feels like she is right in my living room giving me my half an hour lesson. All in all I have come to like the online lessons through Patti"....Student, Rural MB

"Taking fiddle lessons with Patti has changed my playing entirely! Just after 6 lessons, I feel like I have come leaps and bounds from where I started. She gives insightful advice and is very knowledgeable of all things fiddle related. I learned the 'Old Reel of Eight' before my lessons with Patti... not many people liked it, but after four lessons with Patti I had the same people asking, "what is the name of that tune?!"...Student, Edmonton

"When I first thought about online fiddle lessons, I was really worried that I wasn’t good enough or that I just wouldn’t be able to “get it”. Patti has let me choose all my tunes, and she breaks down the melodies in a way that I’m able to learn the notes and the phrasings all at the same time. Every lesson has a natural flow that never seems too fast or too slow and is tailored to my abilities. It has become so much easier to learn new tunes at workshops, on my own, or at fiddle jams. More recently, other players have been noticing a big improvement with my playing, and that’s been really encouraging."...Student, Rural Alberta

"I started to learn to play the fiddle about 4 years ago after being inspired by a performance while on holiday in Canada. That weekend, I purchased a fiddle and some Canadian fiddle music thinking I could just learn to master it on my own. I have taught piano and composition for years so learning to master a new instrument was exciting. But excitement and good intentions are not enough! What I really needed was another set of ears and eyes to help mentor me, watch me play and show me a better way of doing things. There are few good fiddle players in my area but being a good fiddler doesn't automatically mean you are good teacher. What I really wanted for myself was a great teacher which meant having to explore the use of online learning. Frankly, I was a little bit nervous about the quality of my lessons online but the technology is so good now that I really don't feel one bit harmed by not being in the same space. Plus, it is rewarding to not have to pack up my things. I am able to invite my teacher Patti into my home without the burden of travel!"...Student - Florida, USA
